Too Much Glue

Title: Too Much Glue
Author: Jason Lefebvre
Series: No
Recommended for: 
Pages: 32 pages
Call Number/Link:  E LEFEBVRE, J.

Synopsis:”Matty LOVES glue. At home with Dad, he makes glue glasses, glue mustaches, and glue bouncy balls. But at school, Matty’s art teacher worries and warns, ‘Too much glue never dries.’ In art class one day, Matty decides to make the most fantastic glue project ever, with a super-special ingredient — himself!” — from publisher’s web site.

Comments:  Great art work, nice vivid pictures, ok story line.  This is a story that promotes creativity, so if you are looking for a lesson on too much glue don’t look to this book. I feel that kids will enjoy the book, and if one wants to make a lesson out of this book one can find a way.

Synopsis:   Amelia and her best friend, Princess Sparkle-Heart, do almost everything together, so when the Princess suffers an accident, Amelia’s mother puts her sewing box to good use and makes the doll better than ever.

Comments:   I love this book!  It seemed like it would be girly because it’s the story of a girl and her doll, but it’s not.  Princess Sparkle-Heart is a perfectly lovely princess doll until [cue ominous music]…  a jealous dog tears her to shreds.  The result: Amelia’s mom gives Princess Sparkle-Heart an amazing makeover and creates the fiercest princess doll ever!
